durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle, light brownish amber with a two finger, big-bubbled beige head. Nose is grassy, caramely, herbal, and slightly mushroom-y. Tastes a bit sweeter upon the first sip, but the nuanced flavors come out in subsequent sips. Prickly palate. Reminds me of some of the Fantome saisons in its weirdness. I dig it.

C’est sans doute la dernière bière de beloeil que je dégustais! Celle-ci s’appelant dorénavant Moinette Ambrée. Personnellement, je regretterai son étiquette présentant le château de Beloeil lui donnant un côté désuet s’alliant très bien avec le côté terroir de cette bière. Visuellement la bière présente une magnifique robe ambrée (légèrement opaque pour ma bouteille), une effervescence intense et une épaisse mousse blanc-cassé. Au nez, s’expriment en priorité les arômes de malt, de caramel, sucre candi. L’utilisation de 5 malts différents donnent à cette bière une riche complexité et des variations des plus intéressantes. La première attaque, très discrète est maltée. Très rapidement arrive une très belle et longue amertume. Les arômes de confiture d’abricot, de caramel sur des nuances tourbées et maltées donnent à la bière de beloeil à la fois rondeur et rusticité. Le final, long se termine sur des notes alcooliques et sèches, très caractéristique de la brasserie Dupont, qui comme à son habitude maîtrise parfaitement la puissance de 8,5 % Abv. Essayez là sur un camembert au lait cru, bien affiné...une merveille! PS : si quelqu’un peu m’éclairer sur son référencement en tant que bière de garde?

I love dupont, and its very distinct, and easily recognizable yeast flavor (or at least I think it’s yeast). This one must be my favorite (and i do think I’ve tried all their (common) beers): it has all their typical flavours, but then in a more more rounded, full flavour. A really great surprise!

Big foam, but quite short lasting with frothy head. Hazy with little yeast (?) suspended in it. Copper color. Nice, malty aroma with some "cellary" notes. Belgian character is straightforward. Quite citrusy, mellow nose with dominating malt. In the first taste it is fairly dry, then there is a lot of malty sweetness. Everything is nicely contrasted with belgian, little phenolic, spicy character. Carbonation is medium, goes well with mouthfeel. After heating the beer, alcohol becomes noticable, but still very nicely hidden in compare to its real content. Very good biere de garde.

Jado (766) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2016
750 ml bottle. Hazy amber-brown body topped off with a fluffy white head. Lemon, funk, cinnamon, banana, bubblegum and flowers on the nose. Slightly sour in the mouth at the start, followed up by a lemon zest hit overlaid with peppery spice. Silky, almost marshmallow like, mouth feel. Zesty finish leads into a spicy aftertaste. Very nice.

Bill Becker (793) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - MAY 30, 2016
750ml bottle from 2014. Not a gusher. Pours a semi clear deep gold with plenty of long lasting foam. Serious lacing. Spicy fruity malty nose with an apple like presence that suggests dryness. Hmm. .that’s an expected quality from the style. Fruity again with an almost tart flavour or 2. Malty and spicy and hoppy with the latter bringing a lot of dryness. I like the interaction between the malt and hops. Medium body with very lively carbonation. I expected something good considering the brewery; I was not disappointed.

Sausagedog (11) - Scarborough, AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2016
Bloody awesome! Amazing balance, rich malt and ester, belgian bretto taste, preserved fruit, subtle sweet molasses behind the hop/yeast dominance. Can’t wait to try again!
